Food For Thought
Did you ever read 500 Words to Grow On? It is a visual dictionary for children with scenes (a kitchen, a neighborhood) in which each object is labelled. I vividly remember the country scene with a "meadowlark" sitting on a "fence" with hills, cows and farmland in the distance. I like to think that my Cavallini print of gourmet foods as a grown-up version of that wonderful book. I showcase it in different spots around the house depending on my mood in a lightweight 18 x 24 frame. If you like food illustrations, you might also want to check out Cook's Illustrated magazine. Bon appetit!
